Intact World Cup Podium Tracker

On October 2nd Jordan Belchos, a national team member, visited the Kawartha Quarks in Peterborough to help celebrate a $1000 grant awarded to the club as part of the Podium Tracker program. There to present the cheque to club President Simon Barker was Warren Ting, Intact Insurance business development manager for the Durham region. For local coverage of the event check out the article in today's Peterborough Examiner.
Many Ontario clubs have benefited from the World Cup Podium Tracker program over the past two seasons. Check out for details on the program and to see if your club won a grant. Tell us about it or send photos to show us what your grant has meant to your club! Better yet, send Intact a note to let them know how grateful you are for their support.
